Visit one of the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world in Pula, Croatia

A beautiful city with a rich culture and history, Pula is where you will find one of the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world, and ancient Roman buildings that dates back to the 1st century.

The largest city in Istria County in Croatia, Pula has something for everyone. The city was built by the Illyrians about 3000 years ago, occupied by the Romans in 177 BC, was the main port of the Austro-Hungarian navy from the late 19th till the early 20th  centuries, was part of Italy from 1918 and 1947, and after world war II, became a part of Croatia. Today Pula is a melting pot of Croatians, Bozniaks, Slovenes, Italians and Serbs. The city is home to more than 62,000, and covers a total area of 51.65 square kilometers. The city can be reached by bus and train from the major cities in Croatia and Venice, and by ferry from Venice.  You can also fly into Pula Airport located 6 kilometers from the downtown area. It is served by a number of European carriers.

There are so many sights and activities to experience in Pula. It is a favorite tourist destination of Croatians during the summer when they can enjoy a number of outdoor and water activities, but the city is known internationally for its historic landmarks particularly the Pula Arena, the best preserved ancient monument in Croatia, and the only remaining entirely preserved Roman amphitheater to have four side towers and with all three Roman architectural orders. Aside from being awed by its structure, you can tour the inside and visit the caverns beneath. Aside from Pula Arena, the city boasts of a number of historic landmarks including the Temple of Augustus, Triumphal Arch of the Sergii, Hercules Gate, Twin Gates, Augustan Forum, Chapel of St Mary of Formosa, Roma Floor Mosaic, and the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

You cannot skip Pula if you are visiting Croatia. It is a city that will take you back to the past, while enjoying the present. Consult your travel agent for more details.
